Threadless Shirt: GMOs OMG!

Here's the winning design for Threadless's non-GMO design challenge. We love its simplicity. The fact is, when we eat genetically modified organisms — which most of us are without even knowing it — we simply don't know the long term effects. Let's take the smart approach and make sure our food is properly labeled so we at least know if it contains GMOs or not. Otherwise, we're all just lab rats in this massive food experiment.

The organic cotton t-shirt is on sale here. A portion of each sale goes to the Institute for Responsible Technology to support their important work in food safety.

Stop Talking. Start Making.

Start Making is a nice little site featuring short videos with well-known makers. The site is to promote a new online program, Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship, which they say will "guide you through a structured path to starting a company people love." Sounds great to us.

In one of our favorite videos, IDEO founder David Kelly gives excellent advice on prototyping to move your ideas forward.

Tiny Story

Good storytelling looks ridiculously easy when it’s done well, but is in fact devilishly hard to pull off. The only way to get better is to practice—and what better way to practice than by forcing yourself to tell a story with only the simplest possible elements? That’s what animators Sebas and Clim have done with Tiny Story.

Sir Richard's Condoms

Meatless Monday: Homemade "Sunshine" Burgers 

Today's Meatless Monday recipes comes from The Vegan Chickpea:

When I was getting ready to prepare dinner a couple of weeks ago, I had to break it to Dayv that all of the Sunshine Burgers were gone. He had been enjoying them every evening and they disappeared quickly considering that each container only contains three burgers. I quickly glanced at the ingredients and realized I had all of the ingredients on hand to make my own version! 

An hour later, my homemade "Sunshine" burgers were created. Dayv loved them. How much did he love them, though? So much that when I asked him yesterday if he wanted me to buy more Sunshine Burgers, he said, "Nah..I like yours better."

The Antidote to Apathy

It's a common belief in our society that the vast majority of people don't get involved in civic affairs because they are selfish, stupid, lazy and apathetic. But what if our institutional make-up is to blame, rather than individual people?

David Meslin identifies 7 barriers that keep us from taking part in our communities, even when we truly care.

The Yale Heart Study Needs Study Participants

Our friends at the Yale Heart Study are concerned with how people get medical care when they are having symptoms of a heart attack. They are asking people who have had a heart attack to share their experiences at http://heartstudy.yale.edu.

The goal of this study is to help people get care as quickly as possible when they are having heart attack symptoms.

Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline!

Bill McKibben of 350.org was on The Colbert Report last night to discuss the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, which many are saying would be game over for our climate. It's estimated that annual carbon pollution from the Keystone XL pipeline could be at least 82% higher than average crude refined in America.

The 350 community (including The Climate Reality Project, Patagonia, Sierra Club, Robert Redford, and many more) is currently blitzing the Senate with over 600,000 messages in one day. Add your voice now!

Facebook as a Transformational Force for... the Greater Good?

Facebook's looming IPO is the talk of the tech scene, but in the midst of all the discussions around the company's financials and speculations about newly-minted millionaires, there's something unexpect in Mark Zuckerberg's S-1 letter:

We hope to change how people relate to their governments and social institutions.

We believe building tools to help people share can bring a more honest and transparent dialogue around government that could lead to more direct empowerment of people, more accountability for officials and better solutions to some of the biggest problems of our time.
